BreezeFigs Quick-Pix, Saturday, November 3rd

EmailWell, as handicappers we can sometimes mess up, but so can Mother Nature which played havoc with everyone’s Breeders’ Cup selections last week, especially ours. But otherwise, “BreezeFigs-qualified” horses had a splendid day across the country, winning six of the 11 maiden races in which they started (plus a stakes), and adding an additional six on Sunday (and another stakes)—three of them at Churchill. Indeed, of the 56 maiden 2-year-old races across the country last week in which BreezeFigs horses ran, 25 of them were won by horses that appeared on our daily BreezeFigs cards, and half of them won their debuts or second start. They included two of the three at Aqueduct on Halloween and a complete sweep of all five races Tuesday at Delaware, Philadelphia, Penn National, Portland Meadows and Zia Park. We like to spread things around.

Remember, our rules still hold about BreezeFigs “qualified” runners: You can get a good idea of what “qualified” BreezeFigs horses are by clicking on BreezeFigs Information underneath the two BreezeFigs links in the DRF-PLUS box in the right hand column on the home page and downloading files there. Remember, keep stride length (SL) in mind when handicapping from the BreezeFigs sheet and take advantage of all the tips that we provide on those sheets as well.

Today there are 16 maiden races for 2-year-olds at 10 tracks across North America on the BreezeFigs card—we’re looking in both the U.S. and Canada with our Quick Pix. Good luck!

Laurel, , Maiden Special, One Mile Dirt

This is a perfect race to use BreezeFigs information. There are three BreezeFigs horses entered, but only one first-timer, Supreme Orient, who we think is a steal at 3-to-1 in the morning line. Though he hasn’t got much in morning works this horse earned a BreezeFig of 66 at EASMAY going ¼ mile (the top of the day was 68) and had an enormous 26.5 ft SL. Use this horse in all your exotics, and you might pay attention to the other marginal BreezeFigs horses, Punchitupanotch, who is changing from turf sprint to dirt route, and Along Came Reagan, who has a license to clunk up for a piece.

Woodbine, , Maiden Special, 5 Furlongs (Polytrack)

We like the firster Holborn who came out of the OBSAPR sale with a tremendous effort—his stride length was just about a foot longer than average for colts that day, and he was extremely smooth and agile and earned the best Group 1 BreezeFig of the day, a whopping 13-over-Par 75. Back him up with a horse that seems to be coming on at the right time, Southeast Coast, making his third start, though this Group 1, four-over-Par gelding who RNA’d for 72K at OBSMAR may be looking for a little more distance..
